Massive 364-Foot Taekwon V Statue Will Crush Puny Humans
Holy crap! So Japan builds giant Gundam and Testsujin statues (18 and 18.3 metres, respectively), now South Korea is building this freakin’ huge Taekwon V (Voltar the Invincible) replica that will be more than twice the height of the Statue of Liberty.
Taekwon V will be the center-piece of Robot Land, a nearly $US600 million dollar development of entertainment areas, exhibition halls, research centres and businesses that we’ve mentioned in the past. Though it broke ground long before the Japanese projects, many believe South Korea’s Taekwon V cartoons copied Japan’s Mazinger Z in the first place. Reow.
The park is set to open to the public in 2012, with full access starting in 2013. And yes, that’s a monorail whizzing past Taekwon V’s ankles. Awesome. [Robot Land (translated) via Plastic Pals]
